Winchester Academy presents Apollo 50 Years After – What Now?

November 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Apollo 50 Years After – What Now?

Robert Benada, PhD in Physics, worked at the Jet Propulsion Lab on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. NASA’s Manned Space Program brought Americans into space and ultimately to the Moon. This tremendous technical achievement happened in a time of growing social and political turmoil, particularly the Cold War, Civil rights, assassinations, and the Vietnam war.  The courage and genius that built to the 1969 Apollo 11 landing was the foundation for a world fleet of Earth and planetary satellites.  Currently there is little US movement towards further manned flights beyond Earth orbit (Space Station) so what will our space future hold?

This program is complementary to the Waupaca Public Library’s early Fall exhibit on the Space Program. 

Please thank Vance and Ann Linden for sponsoring this program.

Our free programs are open to everyone on Mondays beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Waupaca Area Public Library. Coffee and cookies are served at 6:00 P.M. 

If cancellation is required, an announcement will be made on WDUX & Facebook. To receive-mail notification of each program, please send a request to: winchesterwaupaca@gmail.com
